WHAT IS THE BATCH HAND RITUAL?
During the pandemic, skincare and bathing rituals have become increasingly important to us all. Elevating an ordinary routine into a mindful ritual has helped us take a moment out of the everyday madness to reconnect with ourselves, process our day, whilst at the same time, take care of our skin using beautiful organic products.
I’ve been a big advocate of the benefits of bathing rituals – from the Forest Bathing in Japan, Shirin Yoku and Onsen baths, to our very own Salt & Oil Bath Soaks and Body Scrubs. I’ve personally been able to handle lockdown so much better having my daily bathing rituals, and it’s been fantastic to hear so many of you have been enjoying them too.
Now I wanted to share with you the brilliant benefits of our Batch Hand Ritual. With so many of you suffering with dry hands from frequent hand-washing, and also experiencing severe eczema from moisture being stripped from your sensitive skin by the high alcohol content of sanitisers, our Batch Hand Ritual provides 3 highly effective organic ingredients to nourishing, soothe and protect dry hands, beautifully presented in our Batch Bee Bag.
The Batch Hand Ritual contains our award-winning Salt & Oil Scrub (140g), Eco Cert Prickly Pear Seed Oil, and our award-wining Organic Beeswax Balm – all proven to protect the skin’s natural barrier function, locking moisture in and allergens out.
HOW TO DO THE BATCH HAND RITUAL?
Step 1. Soak your hands in a bowl of warm water. Pat with a towel until hands are slightly damp.
Step 2. Gently exfoliate by rubbing the Salt & Oil Body Scrub all over your hands, avoiding broken skin as the salts may sting. Lift your hands to your nose and inhale the aromatherapeutic essential oils. Inhale and exhale slowly. Rinse the salts and oils from your hands and pat dry with a towel.
Step 3. Place a drop of the Eco Cert Prickly Pear Seed Oil on each cuticle and massage into all dry areas of your cuticles and nails.
Step 4. Smooth a small amount of the Organic Beeswax Balm all over your hands and wrists, to nourish and protect your skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE BATCH HAND RITUAL?
I formulate all Batch products from the same starting point – natural and organic ingredients to soothe, repair and protect dry, eczema prone skin.
Mother Nature knows best in my opinion and from experience of raising 2 daughters with severe eczema and allergies from birth, natural and organic products, powered by the bees, the land and the seas are best.
Each Batch Hand Ritual features a proven product to soothe dry sin and eczema, whilst at the same time, injecting a megadose of moisture.
Our Salt & Oil Body Scrub is enriched with super-moisturising organic, unrefined Shea Butter, plus Vitamin A and Linoleic Acid-rich Apricot Kernel Oil. It’s loaded with mineral rich fine Dead Sea Salts and Pink Himalayan Salts, to gently exfoliate and slough dead skin cells to reveal glowing skin. The high-grade Organic Sweet Orange and Bergamotessential oils provide potent aromatherapy benefits for deep relaxation and a citrus scent to boost your mood.
This deluxe body scrub is formulated to:
– Gently soften, detoxify, exfoliate and moisturise
– Remove dead skin and unclog pores, to leave skin silky smooth
– Beneficial for those with dry skin conditions – keratosis pilaris, eczema and psoriasis
With the texture of a marshmallow balm, infused with therapeutic exfoliating salts (with 84 vital minerals including magnesium, brilliant for mind and skin).
WHY IS ECO CERT PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL SO LOVED BY BEAUTY EDITORS?
“Glowing skin in a bottle.” – Jo Elvin, Editor, YOU Magazine
100% organic, ethically sourced from North Africa, we think our Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil is the best nature has to offer if you have dry, sensitive skin, and here’s why:
Pressed from the seeds of the Prickly Pear Cactus, this luxurious oil calms down redness, protects the skin against ageing by neutralising free radicals, helps stimulate collagen production, brightens under-eye dark circles, all whilst deeply moisturising and restoring the skin’s elasticity.
It contains the highest amount of vitamin E of any other natural oil (including Argan oil), and is extremely rich in essential fatty acids, including omega 6 and 9, antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and Vitamin K.
This multipurpose oil penetrates the skin quickly, leaving no greasy residue and is also an excellent hair and nail treatment.
Unlike other brands, our Prickly Pear Seed Oil is 100% organic, certified by EcoCert and Cosmos, and is packaged in an amber glass jar – not plastic – to protect the integrity of the oil, which is one of the most precious you can buy.
WHY ARE ORGANIC BEESWAX BALMS SO GOOD FOR DRY SKIN?
